My Thoughts: MySql or MariaDb for Beginners in 2020

MySql for learning purposes.

Go with MariaDb when you have more experience with MySql. Most things you will need are supported by both DB. Once you have more experience, you can move onto MariaDb if you believe that is a better option.

One of the biggest reasons is that there is more resources available for MySql. Most MariaDb refers to MySql, but it seems to be starting to branch a little. 

Another big reason is the a graphical interface, GUI, or IDE. Most are not free for MariaDb. Although some articles say that you can use MySql, there are also recent articles that state that MariaDb is starting to not work or less stable. From personal experience, I have had no problems with DBeaver with MariaDb.
